Students across the county are feeling that nervous excitement that only comes once a year, as they prepare to go back to school
For students at Davila Day School, this year is extra special because this is the first time the year-round school has gotten a summer break. On top of that, they came back this week to a newly remodeled campus. They were off for a couple of months while work was done to the building.
"It's exciting for them to come back to school," Principal Tina Neal said. "They're excited to see their friends."
Davila Day School serves students in preschool through 6th grade who are deaf or hard of hearing. SDCOE runs the program in affiliation with the South County and East County special education local plan areas (SELPAs).
The school was painted a new color, get new carpeting, and now have its own front office for the first time. The work is part of a larger project to modernize Vista Square Elementary School, which Davila shares a campus with in Chula Vista.
"Kudos to Chula Vista Elementary School District," said Russell Coronado, senior director of the South County SELPA. "They have done an impressive job, and the South County SELPA is very grateful."
